Goldsmiths Students’ Union is run by students for students. As a democratic organisation we elect the representatives through a cross campus election. The successful candidates take on the responsibility of representing you the 9500 students of Goldsmiths.
Our student representative positions are split into full and part time positions. The four full-time officers are elected on a specific portfolio and spend their year in office working on your behalf to represent the student voice within the union, across the College and on a national level. Each officer is either a current student who takes a year out of their studies or a graduate who stood for election in their final year.
Our volunteer part-time officers who make up the Student Assembly, a democratic forum for debate and policy making, where all students are welcomed to bring forward proposed changes, and then vote upon them. A number of the full and part time representatives have have seats on the key Goldsmiths decision making committees, meaning that your representatives really can influence change not only to the union but to the college itself. Their influence doesn’t stop there - full time officers and part time officers both go further afield in their capacity as your representatives taking your views to national forums of debate. All positions offer great experience and will bolster even the strongest CV. Elections are an integral part of goldsmiths Students' Union, it makes us who we are, gives you the opportunity to have your say on how we should be run and by participating in elections you are not only showing an interest in your union but ensuring that people understand the importance of democracy and the fact that it should never be taken for granted.
You have the opportunity to be a leader of an organisation with a turnover of over a million pounds. It is an opportunity to develop yourself for the next stage in your life, whilst delivering to students the highest level of representation.
